GRAND RAPIDS (AP) – Grand Rapids is hosting an exhibit commemorating the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The exhibit titled “9/11 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit” will be displayed Sept. 9-11 at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. It returns for the second time to western Michigan to coincide with the “September 11 Day of Remembrance and Scout Salute.”

The exhibit’s three sections comprise the history of the World Trade Center, events at ground zero on the day of the attacks and the story of Stephen Siller, a New York firefighter who lost his life on 9/11. The exhibit was created by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which was established by Siller’s siblings.

The Grand Rapids event, which is free and open to the public, has been held since 2002.
